it an active criminal investigation. now here's why it is so interesting. the u.s. justice department you may remember spent years investigating armstrong for drug distribution, fraud and conspiracy. but then a year ago it closed the case without much of an explanation. it surprised a lot of people at the time. even some of those involved in the investigation because many were convinced that they had the goods on armstrong. many thought armstrong's admission that he doped during his prime years of cycling might lead to new criminal charges. he's denied doping for years, even under oath. we now know that the federal investigation never ended or it's been restarted. the big question tonight is, could lance armstrong actually go to jail? betsy andreu is with us tonight. her husband was a teammate of lance armstrong. they testified in the trial. jeffy tubin also joins me. you heard him say he wants to cooperate with the investigation. they're giving him more time. what do you make of that? >> i think it's a good thing. it's about time that lance came forward. i think he has good people telling hi

warning system being worked on in the u.s., phil. is russia considering something like that? have you heard anything? >> reporter: russia is certainly very worried about asteroids that pose a threat to the planet. but much of the scientific opinion that has been expressed here and around the world over the last 24 hours or so is that meteors of the size that were seen here are not easily detected or prevented. scientists say they enter the atmosphere quite routinely. but usually it takes place over the ocean or less populated areas or whatever noise they create, it simply goes unnoticed. what makes this such a rare event is it took place over this very sizable city, susan. >> i can't imagine seeing that, the fear and panic they felt. phil black, thank you, appreciate it. >>> to the scene now, this didn't take long. a passenger stranded with thousands of others aboard the disabled carnival "triumph" is suing carnival for negligence, fraud, and emotional distress. calls the ship, quote, a floating hell and floating toilet. she says she was forced to walk through feces to get to long lin

of the u.s. military fighting in afghanistan and, i believe, iraq as well. jake tapper is here. jake, you wrote a powerful book on this struggle in which clint romesha played such a critical role and we see the president now meeting with some family members of those who didn't necessarily make it out of that battle. your book tells the story. what do you think? you spent a lot of time with clint romesha. jake, tell us what you think was going through his mind as we heard all of these words. >> just one other point before we get to that, the president right there saying hi to the son of justin gallegos and the daughter of josh kirk, two men who did not make it back. the white house making a point of making sure the president would meet the children of the eight men who were fallen. but to answer your question, wolf, clint romesha is -- has been all weekend very uncomfortable with the attention. he is not one who seeks the limelight. he is the quintessential soldier who talks about how he did this for his buddies and he didn't do anything other than his job and he still is haunted by the ei
did they do that? we can't look at that from the perspective of a u.s. lawyer. they did it to specifically avoid him having to testify, be subject to cross examination, which all of which would have been available for the trial -- >> so he doesn't have to answer any questions? >> this is critical because if they didn't offer anything then they may not be able to undermine the premeditated nature of the allegation. >> we'll obviously continue to talk about this case all morning and you're going to stick around with us, which we appreciate. >>> our other top story this morning, 30 million people across the 18 states are now in the path of a powerful winter storm moving into the plains. the system is huge. it's literally an area about the size of mexico stretching from the dakotas all the way into texas. while it dumps snow in the north it's also going to pour heavy rain over parts of the south and maybe even tornados along the gulf coast. parts of kansas are looking at a foot and a half of snow. several flights have already been cancelled out of kansas city international a

. joining me now, sister mary edwall, the director of media relations for the u.s. conference of catholic bishops. good morning, sister. >> good morning. >> i know pope benedict said he's resigning because of his health. some people there's more to this. pope john paul suffered from parkinson's disease. he died while still pope. do you care to speculate? >> i think pope benedict xvi saw what it was like to have a papacy when the man at the head of the church is so ill. there's a slowdown, so to speak, in getting the work done during the papacy of john paul ii and also during the papacy of paul vi. so i think his own experience with what it means to have someone at the helm who is not up to 24/7 because of his own physical limitations probably influenced him. he knew more than others what this really meant because he was right there in the vatican. >> there are some big issues the catholic church is dealing with now, if the new pope is italian, as italians will be pushing for, or american, as americans are pushing for, is it more likely that the church will bend on perhaps allowing more wo

house wants to make the u.s. a magnet for making things again. so time for some fact checking. christine romans on the case. >> after 20 years of jobs and manufacturing moving to cheaper factory floors around the world, the president sees a shift, a return to manufacturing here. >> our first priority is making america a magnet for new jobs in manufacturing. after shedding jobs for more than ten years, our manufacturers have added about 500,000 jobs over the past three. >> a fact check of that 500,000 figure it's true if you tally jobs from 2010 when the industry hit rock bottom, but a longer view tells a different story. this is the context you must look at any manufacturing story with. this is manufacturing in america, the number of manufacturing jobs since 1979. that chart is terrible. the industry hit a peak with nearly 20 million jobs, manufacturing jobs, in 1979. it's been shrinking ever since, hitting rock bottom in 2010. the jobs he's talking about is the little far right part at the bottom of the line. some areblying production back to the u.s. to keep better control of their pro

, a prominent u.s. cardinal protected priests from police after being accused of molesting children. a lot going on there. this may have some people asking, so why do we have priests at all? that is the subject of a new book by pulitzer prize winning author and catholic gary willis called "why priests: a failed tradition ". and also brett strong, a protestant, also an ordained minister. gary, you argue the institution of priesthood, you say it's a mistake. how so? >> well, there were no priests in the original followers of jesus. paul does not call himself or anyone else that in his letters. the gospels called no one a priests but the jewish priests. of course, that's the issue. the first followers of jesus did have brooess but they were the jewish priests in the temple because the first christians continued to go to temple and synagogue. >> do you think they have too much power, gary? >> yes, they -- well, once it was introduced, all of the gifts of the spirit that paul talks about in his letters, readers, healers, exexorcists, it got separated off. when jesus sent out his disciples at first th
was a former navy lieutenant in the naval reserves. and now we are told that u.s. navy bases in california and nevada are on, quote, maintaining a heightened security posture, a heightened state of alert as they too are on the lookout for this man. and they do have some reason to know that he has approached the u.s. military in the last few days. a couple of days ago, they learned -- they discovered that he had stayed at a navy motel facility in san diego, and on wednesday he approached two navy sailors at his old unit when he was in the reserves, had a conversation with them, they did not realize they had been talking to dorner until they saw all the news reports. so a lot of concern now, in fact, a day ago, the point loma naval base shut down briefly while they thought he might be there. so now overnight the admiral in charge of the southwest region of the united states for the u.s. navy has ordered this heightened security posture. they're not talking exactly about what they're doing. i think we can well understand that they're going to check everybody's passes, everybody's access, as t

clark, the court system in south africa appears quite different than that here in the u.s. i mean, this bag hearing looks like a trial, and because of that, the prosecution has had to show their evidence very early, almost immediately. you say that's a real disadvantage. >> it's a problem. it's a problem, jake. the prosecution has only just gathered the evidence. let's remember this only happened a few days ago and it takes a while for everything to shake out. it takes a while for us to know what the evidence tests out to be. we don't even know if it's really testosterone that was found in his house. we don't know what, if any, blood results from pistorius himself are and whether he was under the influence of testosterone. we don't know so much. i can see where things are not quite as tight as they should be. i agree with mark that certain things did fall apart today, and the fact that they were not wearing protective covering on their shoes is a loss. how big a loss remains to be seen because if the floor was not going to provide much evidence anyway, perhaps you haven't lost muc
people are making a small fortune. public records show ceos of top billing hospitals across the u.s. can garner salaries, deferred compensation and other revenues that rival ceos of major for-profit businesses. take a look at this list put together by a health care journal's review of 2010 and 2011 tax filings, which showed ceos of top grossing nonprofit hospitals making multimillion dollar figures. watch as the numbers get bigger. the top salary paid in 2010? dean harrison, chief administrator of the prestigious northwestern memorial hospital in chicago. his salary and one-time bonus earned him a whopping 9$9.7 million. when we asked about the high salaries and high hospital bills, the american hospital association sent to us taylor, michigan and to malcon henoch at oakwood health care system. even he didn't want to talk about hospital health care executive salaries. he was willing to discuss hospital billing. here the hospital says it tries to work with patients, to understand their bills. >> the information we provide is not perfect. it doesn't disclose everything. and it's not for ev

. he filed a lawsuit to be reinsta reinstated, a suit that was later dismissed after the u.s. supreme court said forcing the scouts to accept him would violate their first amendment freedom of association rights. good morning, james. >> good morning. >> as you listen to governor perry, what goes through your mind? >> i think there are always going to be different opinions out there. governor perry was never particularly sensitive on the issues of racism, and back to the camp episode from about 2 1/2 years, 2 years ago or so. i wouldn't look to him as a model of fairness and nondiscrimination. he's definitely entitled to his opinion. it was unfortunate he made the battleground, when he's talking to young people in the boy scouts. i believe that's when he made those comments. i prefer to direct my attention to the president of the united states, who's the honorary chief scout executive, who as you mentioned just yesterday, implored that the boy scouts should open their ranks to young gay children and allow them to feel equal and allow them to be respected for who they are. >> you heard
and read it several times. >> about the crew, i just want to make a point. these are not governed by u.s. labor laws, you talk about the extra hours and the like, it's up to carnival and maritime law to decide what kind of compensation the crew gets for the time and energy and extra time, because they are not governed by u.s. labor law. >> there is a lot of murky law here, that the case? >> to use a maritime expression, yes. some murky law with regard to their compensation. you know, this is not -- we're not talking about millions of dollars. and in the case of somebody who was just in convenienced, and i'm not trying to downplay the conditions on board by any means, because i think they were horrible, horrendous, but, you know, in those circumstances, you know, you've got to -- you got to consider, well, is it worth bringing a lawsuit against carnival in federal court in miami, florida, for that level of damages? >> all right. thank you very much. great to see you. a lot of legal questions. >> christine. >>> a city mayor losing nearly a billion dollars -- yes, a difficult billion dollar
is joaquin guzman, the man the u.s. treasury department calls the most influential drug trafficker in the world. ted rowlandss is joining us fr chicago. 1500 miles from mexico. but this guy now public enemy number one, why? >> reporter: because he's head of the sinaloa drug car spell and their impact on the streets of chicago has increased immeasurably. they are selling meth, cocaine, haeroin heroin, marijuana on the streets. it's a distribution hub for the entire midwest. his influence is having an adverse effect to say the least on the streets here in chicago. and that that's the reason that he really is if you're going to pinpoint it who is causing the most trouble, he's the guy even though he doesn't live anywhere close to chicago. >> ted, do we think they're anywhere close to finding this guy and capturing him and bringing him to justice? >> reporter: well, he lives apparently up on top of a mountain in mexico and basically directs everything from there. so are they going to go after him or does this change the attempt to get him? absolutely not. it's more symbolic basically.
